#1. Found Glee in the mail from odakota_rose. *squishes* Now I'm plotting to get the rest of my family into the show. *cackles evilly* I've just been stroking the pretty cover for the past week; I know it sounds creepy, but it's so shiny and new and squeeful! :D
#2. MY FATHER'S GOING TO FIJI FOR A WEEK, WOOHOO!
*happydances* A whole week without him! I am so excited. ^_^
Yes, it sounds cold, but as much as I appreciate what the man has done for me, he's not easy to live with- FFS, he'll seize on any excuse to get angry; too many pens on my table, the tap not aligned at the proper angle over the sink, the curtains not closed at some arbitrary hour...it's gonna be blissful without him around. *sighs happily*
#3. Guess what? I walked into the library foyer and a desk laden with odds-and-ends caught my eye, with the sign declaring 'Free to good home: be quick before they're binned'. I saw a whole pile of junk and was about to walk off when these stopped me in my tracks.
I read these books hundreds of times in high school, and now I have my own copies! *bounces* I just wish they hadn't put those stickers right over their faces, but what the hell. Free X-files books, omgyay!
#4. ‘k, so why is Alexis wearing a ring on her wedding finger?
Is she hiding something from us? Maybe I’m being dumb and she explained it somewhere along the way and I missed it but wow. Either that’s a promise ring from a boy she’s serious about or she’s disregarding the convention that a person can’t wear a ring on that finger without it meaning something. I occasionally wear one of my rings on my wedding finger- heck, I’m never getting married and I’m running out of fingers, so what the hell?
Craptastic List of Fail.
#1. Oh, dear god. I wasn't going to watch SYTYCD Australia, or at least, not the auditions- but mother had it on and called me, just as a contestant auditioned with a song from the Labyrinth soundtrack.
O.o Freaky, no? The week I fall in love with this movie, some crazy fan shows up with a routine to one of the songs...but holy crap, it sucked SO BAD. I was cringing, this chick just totally made me want to throttle her for giving people another reason to laugh at sci-fi/fantasy fans. *glares* Oh, tv gods, just ONE person I needed to rock the routine so that I could delight in the fandom squee, but no, she made me ashamed to admit to loving that song. Ugh.
Robin Tunney on the new boss- "It's another woman who's going to flirt with Simon and have power over me...I don't know if that's going to go well. I think there's going to be some jealousy and some power struggles. We're all going to have difficulty with it..."
( I have major issues with this )
Yes, I know I'm judging it before even seeing what they're going to do with this plot arc. But after the way the writers resolved the R/vP UST and the Bosco thing...I've lost a lot of faith in them. It's getting way too desperate.
#3. Vampire Diaries- WHY IS THIS SHOW SO STUPID?
WHY AM I STILL WATCHING IT?
( Convo of Epic Fail )
#4. The Border.
Does anyone watch it?
( Not me, after the season 1 finale. *wibbles* )
30 Day Meme: snurched from labrt2004.
Day 04 → Your favourite book.
Tough call, there are a lot of books I love. But for the one that combines all the elements that I most adore into one amazing book, I'll say Ilona Andrews- On the Edge. Seriously, all the things I love to see in my heroine, all the squeeful aspects I enjoy seeing in my ship...it has it all. *dances* You should all read this book, it's made of epic win.
I do love the Kate Daniels books, but this one's romance/fantasy, so I got to feel like I'm reading something more intellectual than my usual trashy romances but still with Rose rocking the feisty banter and reluctant UST and badassery and culminating in a happy fluffy ending. :D
